    Description

    Hello,

    Our farm is in the beautiful foot hills of the Serra da Estrella nature reserve, we are located in the Mondego valley, and the river Mondego runs right through the property.

    The project is split in two parts, there is the farm and there is venue, the venue is a business offering events such as weddings and retreats and the farm supports the production of olive oil, and our organic garden feeds the project.

    The property and its location offers an amazing summer experience for those of you who enjoy nature, animals and meeting like minded people.

    Looking for all round open minded, enthusiastic people to help out with anything, in particular in the garden animals and with the kids. There are many other farm related jobs and many things to learn if you like.

    Send us a message if you would like to be involved.

    Thank you,
    Michel
    (general manager)
